About Results Tables
The Results Table visualization displays data in a list format. It breaks out each response as a separate row, and allows you to customize what columns of collected data to include. The Results Table is best if you want to see individual responses or open-ended feedback; if you want to display aggregate data, use the Statistics Table or a Data Table.
For basic visualization instructions and customization, visit the Visualizations Overview support page. Continue reading for visualization-specific customization.
Adding Field Columns
Instead of choosing one question as the source of your Results Table, you can add multiple fields that serve as data columns.
- Click Add Field to add a field, or column, of data.
- Type in the text box to change the name of a column. This does not edit the question’s appearance in the survey, just the report.
Qtip: Want the edited field to revert back to its default name? Just erase what you’ve written, and it’ll automatically go back to what is was before.
- Remove a field from your table by clicking the X beside it.
- To change the order of your columns, click the icon beside the field and drag it.
Click the Sort By dropdown to change how the rows are sorted. You can only sort by columns you’ve inserted and dates.
Reverse the sort by clicking the arrow button to the right.
You can manually adjust the Number of rows the table displays by typing in the field or clicking the plus (+) and minus (–) buttons.
Include the first row of column headers by selecting Show header row. Deselect this option to hide it. Remember that you can edit the text of headers above, where it lists Fields.
Select the Styles tab to modify table header and body fonts, as well as other visual aspects of your table.
- Determine the font, size, and color of the table’s Response Count.
- Determine the font, size, and color of the Table Header.
- Determine the font, size, and color of the Table Body.
- Select Alternate Row Colors to shade every other row and make them easier to read.
- Select Repeat Table Header will make sure that the header row (not the title) will repeat as the table gets much larger and has many rows.
- Use Table Density to choose how spaced out or compact your table is.
- Use Margin to adjust the table’s margins.
Results Tables are compatible with all question types, scoring categories, custom variables, survey metadata, and Embedded Data options.
